Lets say 2 things the clutch itself is worn or it's not releasing the clutch enough from the pressure plate.
I suggest a small test
1. Start engine while clutch pedal is releasing the clutch plate hold the brake pedal at the same time and then release the clutch pedal slowly .
How far is the pedal from the floor
You have to be carefull with the bleeding procedure.
You can bring air into the system and result is your problems
You may still have air in the system
Try filling the reservoir again and bleed out the air at the slave cylinder
Use a friend to pump up the clutch pedal then get him to hold the pedal down while you bleed the slave cylinder.
Check the hydraulic clutch operation. This is a clutch master cylinder with a reservoir on the firewall, and a clutch slave cylinder down on the bell housing of the transmission, with a steel tube running from the master to the slave cylinder. When clutch pedal is depressed, hydraulic fluid (brake fluid) is forced from the master to the slave. The slave cylinder should push out a little plunger that contacts the clutch fork lever-pushing it forward to engage the clutch.
Add brake fluid to the reservoir if needed. Watch the plunger on the slave cylinder: if it moves little, or not enough, try bleeding the slave from the bleeder valve. They are bled just like brakes. If bleeding doesn't help, your clutch master or the slave may need replacing. The master cylinder, like a brake master, has internal seals that hold hydraulic pressure, so force can be applied to the plunger on the slave cylinder.
your clutch has went out or the slave cylinder to clutch or clutch master cylinder ck master for fluid if low fill and work clutch peddle to pump up slave cylinder if master is full ck at trans to see if slave cylinder is moving if moving clutch in most likely bad and needs replaced.
remove the slave cylinder and replace. fill the clutch reservoir with dot 3 brake fluis and open the bleeder on the slave cylinder until fluid starts to run out. refill the reservoir with fluid and with the help of a friend have them push down on the clutch pedal and open the bleeder. repeat this step till no bubbles come out and keep filling the reservoir. hope this helps
ok starting where you did... on the side of the transmission itself there will be a 1/2 inch socketed plug that can be undone to add gear oil there will be another on the bottom that can be used to drain the oil. for clutch master, standard brake fluid can be used and is recommended. the causes is most likely low fluid or worn out syncros in the tranny.. check the level of fluid in the clutch system and fill and bleed system at the slave cylinder. after that check fluid in the tranny. if all there is fine then i would recommend bringing it to a trans shop for diagnosis. if the syncros are going out then you will be looking to spend between 750 and 1500 to have it rebuilt or 2000+ for a new trans
I dont want to make you feel silly but it seems like you loosened a grease nipple and not a bleed screw. A small amount of fluid (if the slave cylinder is not new) is normal. Their is no way grease can get into the fluid system. Take off the feed pipe to the slave cylinder Try pumping the pedal or use your vacuum pump from there.Get someone to pump the pedal holding your finger on the end of the pipe to see if their is any preasure comming that far if not its your master cylinder if you have preasure check the slave cylinder again for a bleed screw. It seems more like the master cylinder unless it ran out of fluid otherwise how did air get in. You should also check if the slave cylinder or the bar comming from it is adjustable Sometimes their is a screw on the bar others have oblong holes to move the slave cylinder back or forward
